Welcome

What makes us different

The new rowing machine from the fitness giant.

We take a fully integrated approach to fitness. If you want to see results, get fit, learn more about rowing, or just perfect your technique in a fun, competitive group setting – then look no further. And to top it all off, you can do all this and more in our hi-tech, cutting edge facility in the setting of a stunning Grade II listed church in central London. Come down, take a class, and change your life.

We’ve teamed up with Technogym® to bring you the SKILLROW™, the first gym rowing machine capable of improving anaerobic power, aerobic capacity and neuromuscular abilities in a single solution.

Track your progress with our specially designed app and we can test your body composition and fitness levels as we take your technique to a whole new level.

Industry Game Changer

Technogym teamed up with Olympic rowers Rossana Galtarossa who took home gold for Italy in 2000, two-time World Champion Lightweight Marcello Miani, and eight-time gold medallist for Great Britain, Scott Durant.

Development of the SKILLROW began just over a year ago in close consultation with the three expert rowers, and researchers from Loughborough University in the UK, with the explicit aim to produce the best rowing machine in the world. We think they’ve achieved this – come try it for yourself.

What makes us different

DownOars

01. Do it right

Do it right. We grow up with running and cycling but we know that not may of us rowed. We’ve designed, tried and tested an easy way for you to pick up all the fundamentals.

02. Learn your numbers

Learn your numbers. Getting a proper understanding of what the numbers mean on the screen will make sure you always have a great workout and can keep track of your progress.

03. Fully Connected

Thanks to the SKILLROW™ App, users can enjoy a more motivating digital experience. It’s like having a virtual cox always close by.

04. Unique feel of rowing on the water

The resistance delivered by SKILLROW was designed to follow the natural curve of the stroke in the water. The handle velocity throughout the active phase of the stroke is closer to the oar velocity in boat rowing than traditional ergometers. It’s called AQUAFEEL.

05. Train for Power and Cardiovascular

Unlike other machines our rower offers the ability to add a magnetic resistance which gives you the benefit of training not only for cardio but power improvements.

01 \ 03 Cutting edge

Our technology

Using our specially designed apps, we can create personalised workouts remotely which are programmed into your machine with the simple touch of a button! Virtual races, coaches and bio-mechanical feedback all in clean graphic displays.

We understand that many rowers live and die by their standardised erg scores, so we’ve calibrated the machines to produce scores that are directly comparable to the Concept2.

02 \ 03 Teamwork

Pull as a Team

Our classes are designed around team work so that your stroke rate is the same as your ‘team mates’ but you can pull at a strength that’s right for you. This is a great motivator and really gets you to push yourself further than you would on your own.

INTENSE ON YOUR MUSCLES, EASY ON YOUR BACK

Thanks to AQUAFEEL, the resistance is more gradual, making movement more fluid throughout and avoiding the backlash effect on the lower back.

This adds a further resistance to the air resistance. This groundbreaking innovation enables users change the equipment mode from cardiovascular to power training by simply adjusting the resistance level.

improved stability

Solid and compact, SKILLROW™ is designed for intense workouts in a completely safe environment, without the risk of the equipment moving during training.
